“Playing overtime on the M+M stereo this week is a track called Contagious which is just that, with loads of crunchy guitar, thumping drums and a powerhouse vocal performance”. (Noel Mengel - The Courier Mail, Aug 17 2006)

“UPSIZE have created an EP of old-fashioned, dirty rock songs reminiscent of the glory days of Aussie rock’n’roll”. (DCR - Time Off, Aug 2 2006)
